KlearNow’s AI-enabled software platform automates essential import logistics processes to help customers adapt to the increasing complexity and demands of international supply chains

Digitized customs brokerage and visibility platform for global shipments

KlearNow is transforming B2B supply chains with its smart Logistics as a Service platform that connects data, people, processes and organizations to enable new levels of visibility and productivity that reduce logistics costs and create better customer experiences. KlearNow’s customs clearance and drayage marketplaces on its AI-powered platform ease supply chain bottlenecks by digitizing paper-based transactions and enabling customs brokers and transporters to deliver superior real-time visibility for importers, exporters and freight forwarders.

Participants in global trade lack an integrated workflow to organize documents and data for customs and compliance throughout the shipment journey. A supply chain crisis and increased globalization are pushing shippers and logistics providers to digitize and automate processes faster than ever before. KlearNow removes friction from this process through the use of machine learning to convert unstructured data into open, cloud-based workflows for logistics partners and a connected drayage marketplace that maximizes efficiencies in the “first mile” movement of goods out of congested ports.
